not know if the health-care cost dragon has been slain or is just hibernating. how much of the slow increase comes from the sluggish economic recovery where people without insurance postpone care over which they don't have any kind of discretion at all, and what about the chronic conditions that continued the development of more sophisticated and expensive treatments and tasks? and for the most expensive health care program there is the fact that 10,000 baby boomers are joining me in the over 65 club every day. despite the encouraging numbers about 2011 there is still a lot about this issue to be discussed and analyzed. and here we are with what i think is going to be a very good program on that topic. we are fairly pleased to have, as our partner in today's program, the commonwealth fund. and we are especially pleased to have as our co-moderator today, dr. david blumenthal. i will mention that his policy an analyst -- on top of his policy and analytical expertise he is a care -- welcome to your first online briefing as the head of commonwealth. we are pleased to have you here. >> i
or a allow the federal government to control commerce including healthcare. the president believes in equality. that would be nice. equality is great. if there is a heaven, i assume we will see it there. on earth, equality is impossible. you cannot equate an american who holds a ph.d. with a high school dropout. no matter what president obama tells us the two will never be equal in the market place. therefore, the president seems to want to change the marketplace, putting the federal government in charge of who gets what. even in the private sector. now, yesterday, he confidently stated that his so-called progressive view will bring the nation prosperity. but it has not and it will not. in fact, if america continues down the big spending road, this country could well go bankrupt. a very interesting question is why are so many americans accepting president president os vision when less than 30 years ago president reagan was the political icon? with reagan in mind. president obama made his stand. >> this was a declaration that his interest is to restore us to the liberal of 60 years
, on national tv, that this government proposal we have is just one more choice for healthcare, and you can keep your private insurance you want it, at the time someone should have pointed out, wait a minute, if people don't have any choice what happens to their healthcare, their employer will decide. 200 million people have healthcare taken through employer paid insurance? so what choice do you and i if if we're working for dupont, what happens to our choices? now you know it costs a thousand per worker to insure a worker with health care and the government fine if you don't follow it is $2,000. so it's a perfect incentive to move more people off private insurance and health and human services as sebelius said, the private healthcare insurance industry is in a death spiral. of course they're in a death spiral. that the intention. if you eliminate then it's easier to move to singing-payer system which president obama has said, this is his goal and might take five, seven, eight, ten years. >> we're going next to ken and then alex and robert and then alicia, tom, chris, and lauren fox toned. >> i
the movement of healthcare? >> -- healthcare? >> we are not quite the movement, and it is good the alarm has gone off that there are consequences to the nationalization of healthcare that will destroy civil institutions, religious mostly in this case, that provide healthcare for nonprofits that do. think of the ironies. if you are a pro-life center and you get to 50 employees, you will have to provide abortion services? civil institutions, religiouswhen we , the health care issue did not get the attention. i do not know if i could define today what the alternative to obamacare really is overall. bits and pieces live through the night, like buying insurance in other states, tax reform -- heritage has done a great job of summing a comprehensive plan. i personally would tweak it a little bit. at the end of the day, when we have the opportunity, and i would urge the congress now. we have the house. why wait for the deadline for what they want to do? why doesn't the house pass everything a republican or a conservative would want so that americans can see this is the tax reform plan,when we had be
for healthcare, rising prices for insurance, people losing their coverage, which they are in droves now. companies putting people on part-time work so they do not have to provide them with insurance. all kinds of effects are happening. all those realities accumulate, and as obama pushes the envelope beyond where the american people are comfortable , we could actually have the fulfillment of him going too far and then getting lost opportunities. >> you are nodding. do you think it went too far? >> overreached -- bill clinton in 1994. republicans thought that in 2000 x where the new governor of indiana said, hey, republicans are going to act like democrats with all that spending and government expansion, they will just hire the professionals. and they did. then you saw in 2010, dialing back of the extremism of the first two years. yes, i would like to back up to your original question. i stand in a very small circle of conservatives who have said publicly that obama has significant advantages and would probably win. a recent i said that, i am a professional pollster. i saw a couple things
care reform will be coming up. this is just the first of many of healthcare industries that will be pushing their agenda in washington. >> the other companies involved with this one? >> chevron, exxon mobil, the oil industry being something definitely deep in the heart of texas, so to speak, also some airlines gave money. southwest airlines, united, they have a few hubs in the state as well. they gave it upwards of $50,000. still, for one night for a few hours customer spending $50,000, $250,000 just to get in front of a small group of people? what's georgia state society? >> celebrating the peach state. they had gladys knight as one of the honorees. they have a lot of local businesses set in the state like coca-cola, home depot, kia motors as well as ups. why them? ups is active here in washington. they have a town house on capitol hill where they do a lot of fund-raisers. they're not a surprising to see. >> talk about the presidential inauguration committee. >> pic is the acronym, is a private group. they fundraiser to help support the official inaugural balls, the pa
what are people concerned about that health-care costs. to a lesser extents one economic growth is stronger, maybe they're worried about issues related to the environment. these are not issues that republicans like to talk about. they're not issues that are good at talking about. this is where it emerged in the late 1990's from a time when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington. the whole point of bush was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. something like the prescription drug bill was too big and should have been paid for. the republican party will never give back to the wilderness. we have to keep our brand pure and make sure americans and no where the party of small government. americans are confident that the republican party is the party's small government. they did not vote for the republican party. it is possible that he should not nominate mitt romney next time and get a true conservative, if you look at opinion polls, barack obama won the election because people thought he cared about people like us. that i
this should the level restrict our ability in life-saving medical devices. that is just healthcare. now the president is implementing his agenda. we will see that the benefits are far less than advertised. the costs of this agenda are huge. we spend when chilean dollars more than we take in each year. we cannot keep that up -- we spend $1 trillion more than we taken each year. we cannot keep that up. that is a moment where our economy stalls. we will have to convince the country to change course. we had to reform entitlements. we had to revisit the healthcare law. clearly president obama does not want us to get that chance. he want his last two years to look just like his first two years of his presidency. it was to perpetuate progressive government for at least a generation. why? he thinks it is the right and to do. to do that, he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans, in particular. he will try to divide us. he will try to get us to fight with each other, question each other so we do not challenge him. if we play into his hands, we will betray the voters who
